❇ ❈ ❅ ❄ ❆Christmas is here!!❇ ❈ ❅ ❄ ❆

It is only four days until Christmas now and everybody seems to be rushing around to make the last preparations. Post offices are crowded with people sending or picking up their last-minute Christmas presents, people moaning on Facebook that they have not bought the presents yet and madness going on in the supermarkets as everybody tried to get SOMETHING!
I must admit, I could do better myself as well. Every year I have a resolution to do my shopping throughout the year, so that I pick the right present for everyone. Every year I have too little money to shop in December. I send my Christmas cards late. I am chaotic and I mess up a lot.
On the other hand, I was quite successful this year too! I managed to decorate my first Christmas tree, I made handmade cards for a few of my friends, I wrote a few nice emails and I wrapped my present beautifully. And in all that, I managed to make some really beautiful decorations, for which I did not need to go to a shopping centre, but enjoyed making them at my warm home while drinking tea and eating biscuits :)

I hope you all will be able to find a few moments for yourself, to relax and to rest while surrounded by the ones that you love and will not be the victims of stressful and materialistic Christmas time. Merry Christmas.

Beads again!!!

I made some FIMO polymer clay beads in the past, but never thought that I could actually be the person who makes jewellery or anything like that. That was not for me, I was making bracelets, I thought. Well, until now!!!
At the end of summer I got inspired by a friend who showed me her beaded Christmas decorations in shapes of snowflakes, stars and angels that she made for a Christmas fair that she's going to take part in. It did't look difficult, so I decided to try it too.
These are my Christmas stars (rather than snowflakes) made of glass Czech beads bought mostly at Starbeads and Rooya. If you happen to be in Prague and are bead-crazy, you should definitely visit these two shops! You are going to be pleasantly surprised.
I made little sets of these stars and listed them in the Christmas section of my shop. A few of them are sold now, but there are still some left. Everything that doesn't sell until Christmas will be available in the next year as well, so that you can keep shopping all year round.
